STREET & OUTDOOR FURNITURE | SMART PRODUCTS
Street Furniture Australia aims to bring lasting enjoyment to public places. The company believes that street furniture plays a central role in animating and connecting a space, ensuring it is vital and enriching for the community.
An active research and development program places users at the heart of everything the company does. Together with its design, custodian and contracting partners, Street Furniture Australia strives to make public spaces accessible and enjoyable for all.
SMART FURNITURE SUITE
The company's range of smart products includes the PowerMe™ Table, Escola eBin and Aria Seating System, which can be visualised with an augmented reality app, Build Aria. Each of these products aims to improve the user’s experience of public spaces or create opportunities for smart asset management.
PowerMe™ | Australia’s first smart bench, a charging table that integrates with a range of seats to enable people to sit back, connect and power up their phones. Never run out of battery while out-and-about again.
The table features wireless, USB and power points for charging and can be fitted with WiFi and other hardware. Smart benches allow dwellers to make use of public places for longer — contacting loved ones, working or relaxing outdoors while staying connected to their networks, apps and city services.
PowerMe™ integrates with seats and benches, including the new Aria Seating System, Classic Galleria range, Mall range, Concourse Seat, Termini Seat, or to any seat as a standalone unit.
Escola eBin | Save on waste management costs with fill monitoring, allow maintenance managers to plan efficient collection routes and never waste a trip on an empty bin again. Connect your bins to the asset management app via smart device or desktop to see fill levels at all times. The eBin also sends an alert to your mobile if a fire is detected.
Aria Seating System | A kit of parts that fit together to create custom settings for any site. Modular Aria elements include seats, benches, PowerMe™ Tables and optional arms, 180-degree connectors and panels for 90- and 45-degree curves.
Aria can be specified using the Build Aria augmented reality app to visualise and design on your smart device. See a photo-realistic, true-to-life size image on your screen in the office or onsite.
Street Furniture Australia was named the winner in the Built Environment category at the inaugural Australian Smart Cities Awards in October 2018 for its #BackyardExperiment research and white paper.
The #BackyardExperiment findings fed the company’s research and development program, which launched prototypes at Future Street in 2017 — an installation erected in front of Customs House at Sydney’s Circular Quay that showed how streets could better support communities.
